Hello everyone. I am a Vikings fan and regular contributor over at the SB Nation blog, Daily Norseman. My main screen name is simply "Quantifiable Bladderhorns", but for some reason that account is banned from Dawgs By Nature, so I had to create this new account for the purposes of this FanPost.
If Dawgs By Nature is anything like the Daily Norseman, than the upcoming NFL Draft is dominating most of the discussions on your site, with alot of different opinions being shared. It's because of this prolonged, anxiety-filled speculation that makes the NFL Draft, in my opinion, the most exciting event of the entire NFL calendar year. It's like a giant chess game that determines which Christmas presents your team gets to open that year. I just love it!
Anyway, the reason I'm posting on your blog is because I thought it would be a cool idea to do an SB Nation mock draft where I poll each team's fan base in order to find out which player they most want their team to select. This will give us a pretty good idea of how the draft would go if it were up to the fans to decide, and who knows football better than the fans, right?
Each fan base will be given 24 hours to vote on their selection, and whichever player has the most votes at the end of those 24 hours is that particular team's selection. At that point, I will then take the selected player off the board and go poll the next team in the draft order. In this case, it would be the Raiders blog. When the complete 1st round mock draft is finished, I'll do my best to post an updated FanPost showing the results.
1.) Houston Texans: Teddy Bridgewater (52% of vote)
2.) St Louis Rams: Jadeveon Clowney (44% of vote)
3.) Jacksonville Jaguars: Johnny Manziel (45% of vote)
